|The Mascot - Complete and Uncut - Ladislas Starewicz|
The best stop-motion film ever made, IMO. Actually, one of the best short films ever made! There are two other versions of this film in the archive, but one is missing about 6 minutes and one is missing the soundtrack. I've fixed some editing mistakes and synch problems that have crept into the various editions over the years and posted the complete version of this amazing film. Starewicz had become a master animator by 1933, incorporating techniques never used before and rarely since (such as m...

|You Were There! A conversation with William Shakespeare - Douglas Files Fox, William FioRito, Marc Chusid|
This short animated Super 8mm film was a high school English project from the early 1970's. In the style of Walter Cronkite's "You Are There" shows, a reporter goes back in time to interview William Shakespeare, in an effort to understand the inspiration of the play Romeo and Juliet. We played the subject a little on the broad side. Mostly going for the laughs. Still we covered most of the points we learned in class about Romeo and Juliet...
